Don't know whether you guys have the concept of recklessness in your law, you probably do 'cos your laws originated in our common law.

Anyway, you can do an act intentionally knowing its likely outcome and you can do an act recklessly - ie with no regard to the likely outcome.

The jury then has to decide whether a reasonable person should have foreseen the actual outcome; if so, the reckless behaviour is culpable.

In my mind, Trump was at best reckless and at worst intentional in his behaviour. Both culpable in law.

You come here, shit on the carpet, then wish us good day?

You're not interested in intelligent debate or establishing facts, you just want to spread your faeces around as far and wide as you can then run off laughing.

What is it that you think you are doing marc?
